I bought a banner from the Target dollar spot a few weeks ago that inspired an America cut file. I knew I wanted to add HTV to the banner so it could be part of my Fourth of July décor. There were 8 banner squares. For the life of me I couldn’t think of anything patriotic that had 8 letters.
I solved the word issue by taking one square off the banner and using the word America which is 7 letters long. When I asked for advice on Instagram, I got so many ideas. However, I felt invested in the hand lettered America that I had already created using my iPad.
America Cut File FAQs
Cut these files onto any medium you prefer. The things you can make with a Cricut or Silhouette are endless. Make mugs, cups, shirts, onesies, tote bags or basically whatever your heart desires. I have put together a list of adhesive and iron-on blanks and 35 ways to use adhesive vinyl to give you more ideas. My Vinyl Direct has a whole bunch of vinyl blanks you will fall in love with.
I buy from a handful of different places to get my hands on new products when they come out. I love Happy Crafters because the girls are always so willing to help and they have quick processing time. Waiting around for items to ship is the worst! I also like to purchase from My Vinyl Directand Expressions Vinyl. Both of these places offer the typical colors and types of vinyls and both have an array of fun prints staying on top of new trends.

Using the Cut File
After creating the hand lettered America letters in ProCreate using my iPad and apple pencil I sent them to my computer as a PNG. Then I used the trace feature in Silhouette Studio to turn the PNG file into cut lines.
Below is the banner before I added any HTV.
And here it is after I added red and blue glitter HTV using the cut file.
